An Ode To My Friend Eddy- A Tribute To Eiddwen Jones

Updated on October 12, 2013

She loves to sit in her garden

And commune with the butterfly

That sits upon her shoulder

As she soaks up the light from blue skies.

My friend is so full of giving

Busy to help all who faint at living

Her family loves her the most.

Full of love from the

Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

Way over across the ocean

Where my dear friend, Eddy resides

She keeps a cozy home surrounded

In greenery with her

Kitty cats by her side.

She is sensitive, sweet but strong

Even though Eddy disappeared from

My friends list, she did not stay away long.

She stays steadfast in her writing

Beautiful hubs each day.

Continually remaining close to my heart,

She is only a comment away.

I want to thank her for trusting us,

The ones who miss her so

Seeing photos of her smiling face

And reading her poems, we will grow.

As she continues to write her poetry,

Perhaps another will be my next song.

I love singing "The Butterfly of Wonder",

I hope others will sing along.

I will always give support to my friend Eddy

In anything she is going through

Each day I turn on my computer,

I will look forward to what she posts new.

      What can I say Christina except the biggest thank you ever. I am so touched and feel so humbled.

      Our friendship I shall treasure forevermore.

      This past week or so I had to face up to a not very nice situation caused by others which was pretty painful /this led to my deactivating Facebook. However as days went by and found an inner strength and because of all of my cherished friends realised that I wasn't going anywhere. I have finally faced up and can now move on. Lots of love again Christina and thank you a hundred times over, and that is a lot ha!!

      Lots of love to you from my little corner of wales and have a wonderful day.

      Eddy Jones has inspired so many. And even though she disappeared from my Facebook page for a few days, she stayed steadfast with writing hubs which told me that she was working busy at being creative and that is alright with me. I wish I could shut everything else off just to write. So I had to share with everyone my wonderful feelings about a beautiful soul.

      This was so lovely, and you couldn't have chosen a better or nicer person to write about, we all love Eddy. I wanted to listen to the video, but for some reason it didn't work, I don't think its the hubs fault probably my stupid pc!
